Added light effects for atmospheres and solid surfaces, to make objects more like what a human eye would see.

Huh...I wonder where you got the false-color Charon map. I never could find a way to colorize the 2017 grayscale map to false color...

I made the texture, and the color was derived from this texture.

How did you make the texture? I had been trying to make some of color mask based on that older false color texture that I could paste over the newer grayscale texture, but I simply couldn't find a way...is there some sort of program that you used that was made for that purpose, or did you use GIMP? Also, I would like to know exactly what you did so that I can do it with the full-scale 12k texture.

I made a 8k texture for my personal purposes.

If you are asking about how I colorized the greyscale map. The color map doesn't match the greyscale one perfectly, so I blurred it. Then I decomposed it into YCbCr color space, replaced the Y channel with the greyscale map and recomposed it into YCbCr. I did everything with Gimp.

Of course I have a different standard on how a true color texture should look like so I boosted the gamma value to 2.2 and mixed the RGB channels in a way to simulate true color.

Gliese 581

do you think you could add a modified version of the Gliese 581 system based on this image or something close?

Perhaps we can in the future. Now we decided to limit the addition of individual textures for exoplanets until a complete database is created.

Added names for 52 galaxies instead of designations. 53 galaxies are linked to the English Wikipedia.

I could not make a VK account which is why I am here. I am 15 years old and live in Vladivostok, Russia and have an interest in astronomy. I have downloaded Celestia Origin and I think the project is accurate and up-to-date. I have decided to ditch some of the textures and use my own for some objects. Here is a video I made featuring the software (w/ extra addons included): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qx0dROxqcIg&t=

Thank you. - Joey P.

Thank you for your showcase!
But I don't think it's right to do a review with your own textures. They are an important component of realism of the project "Celestia Origin". Also in the video there is no detailed 3D model of Ceres, textures of stars, dwarf planets and much more.
